Cricket's bigger than baseball anyway in terms of population watching (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, UK, South Africa, Australia, NZ, Caribbean, Zimbabwe and the Netherlands not discounting other fans in countries who might like it anyway)
Your argument is correct, but I have to correct you on cricket being more popular than baseball in the Netherlands. Definitely not true.
Both sports are fringe sports in the Netherlands, but historically and because of recent success (baseball world champions ftw!) baseball definitely gets the cake in terms of media attention and people playing.
If you ask random Dutch people to explain the rules of baseball and name a few famous Dutch baseball players, you might find a few people who could help you out, if you had nothing better to do for a couple of hours.
You'd be really lucky to find somebody though (even if you had a couple of days) who could explain cricket and name a few Dutch cricket players.
I'm an avid sports fan, but I can't name a single Dutch cricket player and I can't tell you who won a match when I see a final score in cricket.
